Hi all- Just received this letter- obviously a fraud- so be careful out there everyone!!!!


Dear Sir/Madam,

Good day to you, my name is Bill Mcquire, I am an artist with my wife

Susan Mcquire,and we are the owner of PORTFOLIO ARTWORKS INC I am from

London,United Kingdom with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life my wife.It is definitely a full house.I have been doing artwork since i was a small child. That gives me about 23 years of experience.I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses.Most of my work are done in either pencil or airbrush mixed with color pencils.I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the

computer.I have been selling my art for the last 3 years and have had my work featured on trading cards,prints and in magazines.I have MARKET all my art works & galleries to private companies in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) and other parts of the world.I'm always facing serious difficulties when it comes to PAYMENTS,This is because most of my

customers in AMERICA are always offering to pay me with U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHEQUE, And it is very difficult for me to cash U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHEQUE HERE in LONDON.This is Because The United

Kingdom Government does not permit the usage of U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'SCHEQUE HERE IN LONDON.


Would you like to work online from Home/Temporarily and get paid weekly? (Open only to US Citizens and Residents)


We are glad to offer you for a job position at our company, PORTFOLIO

ARTWORKS INC. We need someone to work for the company as a Representative/Book keeper in the USA. This is in view of our not having an office presently in the USA.You do not need to have an Office and this certainly wont disturb any form of work you have going at the

moment.Our integrated yarn and fabric manufacturing operations use state- of- the-art textile equipment from the world's leading suppliers. Order

processing,production monitoring and process flow are seamlessly integrated through a company-wide computer network

* The average monthly income is about 4000.00 USD.

* No form of investments from you.

* This job takes only 1-3 hours per day

About the job:

We have sales representatives all over the world to distribute our products.You know, that it is not easy to start a business in a new market (being the US). There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and other difficulties, which

impede our sales promotion.We have decided to deliver the products upfront,

it's very risky but it should push up sales on 25 percent.Thus we need to

get payments for our products as soon as it possible.Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United US without first registering the company name. Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold. For fear of loosing the customers out rightly. Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough,

as international Checks take about 14 working days for cash to be made

available.We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays*Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process.You are not involved in any sales. Our makes direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX).The customer receives and checks the products. After

this has been done the customer has to pay for the products. About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through Certified Checks and Money orders

based on the amount involved.Your Task We have decided to open this new job position for solving this problem.

Your tasks are;

1. Receive payment from Customers

2. Cash Payment at your Bank

3. Deduct 7% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed

4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices you will be contacted to send payment to.(Payment is to be forwarded either by Money Gramme or Western Union Money Transfer).

I received an email from susan bryant but her husband's name was james not richard. I received a cashier's check from bank of america. I took it to bank of america and asked them if it was real. Of course it wasn't. I just wanted others out there to know that they are now doing cashier checks also along with money orders and travelers checks. I gave the check to the bank along with the envelope it came in. I hope it helps.

Hey, my name is Gabe, and I have a good way of dealing with these guys. Consider this convo I had with a scammer supposedly visiting and working in Nigeria. The person identifies herself as "Sharon Brown". This is a quintessential example of a lame scammer. Read on.


sharon brown: Hello dear
Gabe: hello
Gabe: How are you today?
sharon brown: Baby how are u doing
sharon brown: Baby i am not doing fine at all
Gabe: What's wrong sweetheart?
Gabe: I'm doing fine myself
sharon brown: My dear
sharon brown: U know i told u i was surppose to go get some money at the bank
Gabe: yes
sharon brown: U believe the banks here dont accept anything money order or check from the states
sharon brown: And i was told to send it to someone i trust very well back home to help me cash
sharon brown: And my friend is not even in town to assist me cos she went to see her new bf in asia
Gabe: hmm ok, what are you going to do?
sharon brown: I dont know
sharon brown: I am totally confused
sharon brown: They asked me to send it to a trusted person
sharon brown: Can i trust u if i send them to u and they come in ur name
sharon brown: So u can help me cash thm and send me back my money so i can return home
Gabe: I will not constitute the handling of fradulant money orders and/or checks
sharon brown: How do u mean
sharon brown: Money orders i bought back home in US
sharon brown: Just becos i cant cash them here u now call them names
sharon brown: Or what are insulating
Gabe: If they don't honor the money orders there, then they won't honor them here, either
Gabe: If they were actually honorable money orders, then they would've given you fair exchange in return for them
Gabe: I know that for a fact
sharon brown: How do u mean
sharon brown: They dont accept anything from american here
sharon brown: Even the embassy told me to send it home to any one who could help me
Gabe: They accept US funds, don't lie to me
sharon brown: Did u get my last message
sharon brown: Yes but not money orders
sharon brown: from america
Gabe: The only way to get a money order is to first purchase one with US funds
sharon brown: Yes i bought them back home from the stores ok
sharon brown: I am telling u the truth
sharon brown: I both them cos i believed i was gonna be able to cash them here
Gabe: wrong
Gabe: no one is that stupid
Gabe: you wouldn't just buy money orders here and then carry them overseas
Gabe: you would instead buy checks instead
Gabe: and then just write a check when over there
sharon brown: I never knew
Gabe: I hear about these scams all the time
Gabe: Now leave me alone
sharon brown: Cos i botuh this same money orders when i was travelling to Uk and got them cashed there
sharon brown: What are u talking about
sharon brown: Are u saying i am trying to rip u off ur money or what
Gabe: Here is how you deal with them. Tell them you cashed the check and it got returned 4 money orders got returned and that they owe you $100 and demand your money from them when they call its so funny. You yell at them on the phone " Where is my money send me money!!!" meanwhile never cash their checks just keep asking to send you the right one. Or you can send them $5 and alert the local police to wait for these guys at the western union. I bet you they are dumb to show up and get arrested over $5 dollars.
sharon brown: What are u talking about
Gabe: If I were to cash the money orders, I would be liable for the fradulant money
sharon brown: Never
Gabe: Now get lost

Dear Friend,

My name is Susan Bryant, I am an artist with my husband Richard Bryant,We own SUS ART WORLD in London(United Kingdom)I live in London United Kingdom, with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life my husband Richard Bryant.

It is definitely a full house, I have been doing artwork since I was a small child that gives me about 23 years of experience I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses most of my work is done in either pencil or art brush mixed with color pencils.

I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer, I have been selling my art for the last 3 years and have had my work featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines, I have sold in galleries and to private collectors from all around the world.

I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my artworks to Americans, they are always offering to pay with MONEY ORDER OR CASHIER'S CHEQUE, which is difficult for me to cash here in London United Kingdom.

I am looking for a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA who will be working for me as a par time worker and I will be willing to pay 10% for every transaction, which wouldn’t affect your present state of work, someone who would help me receive payments from my customers in the states, I mean someone that is responsible and reliable, because the cost of coming to the state and getting payments is very expensive, long and tedious.

I am working on setting up a branch in the state, so for now I need a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA who will be handling the payment aspect for our company.
These payments are in MONEY ORDERS OR CASHIER'S CHEQUE and they would come to you in your name if you are willing to assist as a representative, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage and WESTERN UNION Charges then wire the rest back.

But the problem i have is trust, I have made arrangement with the FBI in Washington, that if anybody gets away with my money they will definately get hold with the person, you are to receive the MONEY ORDERS OR CASHIER'S CHEQUE PAYMENT which will be sent to you by the FedEX or UPS from my business partners, which would come in form of a MONEY ORDER OR CASHIER'S CHEQUE then you are to take it to your bank account to enable you cash it and send the money cashed for the MONEY ORDERS OR CASHIER'S CHEQUE to me via WESTERN UNION.

NOTE: All charges of the WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER will be deducted from the money, so you are rest assured that you wouldn’t spend a dime out of your personal money.

If you are interested, please get back to me as soon as possible via Email:susan_bryant462@yahoo.co.uk

N: B, Please send to me the listed information below:

#Your full name:
#Your full home address,
#Your age,#Occupation and as well your #marital status, and your,#direct contact telephone number,
I will be needing your home address, so that the MONEY ORDERS/CHEQUES can be sent to you via FedEx whenever we have payment.

I received this email scam from PORTFOLIO ARTWORKS INC.on Wednesday. Lots of friendly banter, but, it still is absolutely nuts that a company would entrust their money to a complete stranger. Also, offering 7% for every transaction. That's appealing to my greed. I cut out some of it, but, the crux of it is below. Be careful and God Bless.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Good day to you, my name is COLLINS BILLS, I am an artist with my wife Susan Vogts, and we are the owner of PORTFOLIO ARTWORKS INC. I'm from London, United Kingdom with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life my wife Susan BILLS. It is definitely a full house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small child. That gives me about 23 years of experience.

I'm always facing serious difficulties when it comes to PAYMENTS, This is because most of my customers in AMERICA are always offering to pay me with U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHECK AND SOME PREFER TO TRANSFER PAYMENT THROUGH BANK OF AMERICA, And it is very difficult for me to cash U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHEQUE OR THE TRANSFER HERE in LONDON, This is Because The United Kingdom Government does not permit the usage of U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHECK NOR THE TRANSFER HERE IN LONDON.


About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through Certified Checks and Money orders Or Bank Of America Transfer based on the amount involved.
